Five for Friday - 6th June 2014
I'm linking up with Farley for some 5 for Friday fun!

1. Art for Kids Website

I discovered this website after reading about it here. A.MAH.ZING!

It's called Art for Kids and is made by a Dad who teaches kids how to draw loads of cool things step by step.

I've decided to make directed drawing a part of our Friday timetable from now on :) Maybe, just maybe it will turn what normally becomes Frazzled Friday into Fun Friday!

2. Senses

We have been learning about the senses this past week. For touch I used balloons filled with different things such as popcorn, marshmallows, rice, shampoo etc. For smell I used film canisters filled with things from chocolate to Vegemite, from garlic to lavender!

The students absolutely loved exploring using their senses!

3. Sandbox sight words

To mix up our literacy rotations this week I had one center outside with the sandboxes. They worked in pairs to read out a sight word for their partner to write in the sand.

4. Report Card Writing

Here in Australia, it is nearing the end of term 2. So I am in the thick of writing Semester 1 report cards. Enough said.

5. Long Weekend and My Birthday!!!

It is the Queen's Birthday long weekend! Yay! And my birthday on Sunday. Double Yay!

Till next time,

Stay joyful!
